Re: Problems converting 23.98 program to 29.97

The main reason some clients...and networks now....want 30p is so they can post the video online, as the web and interlacing don't mix. The fact that they say they will interlace on their end...TO ME...reads as they will broadcast this on air at some point...but also want a progressive version for the web. Which makes me wonder...why are they insisting on a 30p master? They can put the 23.98 one on the web and not have it skip and it'll play fine. Why do they want 30p? Why not accept the 23.98p, add pulldown to create a 1080i60 master for air, but put the 23.98 online?

That's what I'd be asking the client. Explain the issues of 24p to 30p conversion...and that interlacing that will make it look worse than 24p to 60i conversion would.
